Her presenting approach
The same sharp wit that she brings to her Daily Telegraph column and which has made her a regular guest on BBC Breakfast and The Today Programme infuses her talks.  She  has entertained audiences ranging from 20 to 200. As well making people laugh, she also uses humour to examine some of the darker aspects of being human, such as greed, anger and fear. And whether discussing the death of her father or her marriage to the long-suffering Peter, she never strikes a false note. Ask a question and you will get an honest – and invariably funny – answer.

Stephanie presents in English.

Life, motherhood and adulthood.


Stephanie’s events are an hilarious, free-ranging mix of thoughts on all the burning issues of the day, from eating all the icing off the cake and picking your nose in public to hotel freebies, doing the children's school projects and attempting to clear out her mother's cupboards. All told in her own inimitable style.
